Giles Catchpole, one of the most popular and amusing contributors to the Shooting Gazette, together with the renowned and brilliant cartoonist Bryn Parry, have loaded up another game bag’s worth of sharply written and wittily observed shooting types and unleashed them onto an expectant readership through The Second Barrel, a sequel to Shooting Types. Their characters appear in a monthly column in the Shooting Gazette; in which Catchpole wickedly and brilliantly observes the eccentricities of the sportsmen, dogs, beaters, hosts and supporting characters all of which are superbly illustrated by Bryn Parry’s perceptive and humorous cartoons. Every Shot or shooting enthusiast will recognise many of the characters in this book. An ideal gift which will without doubt become an essential addition to every country sportsman’s bookshelf.
"A brilliant book observing the eccentricities of sportsmen, dogs, beaters, hosts and supporting characters. Shooting Types is a must-have book for anyone interested in the sport. Bryn Parry's witty yet excellent cartoons of characters which will be recognised by everyone really bring this book to life."
